... Thanks for the response again - very helpful! I haven't tried lithium, but I go to my pdoc Wednesday and aim to ask about it. Still haven't slept much (day 39 - ugh!) and I found out my somewhat distant cousin just got out of the hospital for lack of sleep, who is also BP. I'm a bit scared right now honestly. But your support helps, thanks! (11 replies)

... Hi again! I think the best so-called average length of time for a bipolar episode is three months. But, if you're not getting much sleep, and it sounds like you get very little sleep (ouch) that can keep the episode going, make it worse, and make it harder to get back to normal. Lack of sleep can turn into a real crisis. I used to take a lot of hypnotic/bedtime benzos when I... (11 replies)
... was completely euphoric which turned to mania. I ended up shooting my husbands phone with a 9mm because i found porn on it. I was quickly taken off that too. Lithium is the only thing that is working for me for the depression. It works pretty well too for the mania but not as much as i hoped. ... (11 replies)

... Hi, I am on 1300mg of lithium and 200mg of seroquel (seroque at night for sleep) both help mood . What I eat and drink affect me ( low caffeine, salt and sugar is what try) and working out 45 mins to an hour 4 or 5 times a week helps also. Geoadone and depakote did not work for me. It took me over 1 year to get stable and my doc and I still play with when to take meds.... (13 replies)
... Hi banana. I just got out of a week stay in a hospital too. I have heard of topamax being used as a mood stabilizer, so that is true. I have never been on it before. I have been on seroquel for a while though. Now I am on abilify, lamictal, lithium, and klonopin. Are you feeling any better since you have been out of the hospital? At first when I got out I had a lot of anxiety.... (13 replies)
... I'm on Abilify, Seroquel, Lithium, Celexa, and Tegretol. Does anybody think all of these anti-mainic drugs could be contributing to feeling down and depressed? I know the meds are prescribed to keep you at a level between mania and depression. Too much anti-depressants can make you manic and too many anti-manic's can bring you down too far. I get REALLY manic and it gets... (1 replies)

... The lithium didn't work for me, nor the lamictal and celexa in combo with lithium. ... (3 replies)
... Maybe you could talk to your doc about the drug combo you're on. I felt like that while on lithium by itself, then lithium and lamictal, then lithium, lamictal and celexa. It wasn't until I dropped the lithium and started up with Wellbutrin that I felt normal again. ... (7 replies)
